The 5 Incredible Highways that will Completely
Change the Face of Mumbai
It cannot be denied that Mumbaikars are much more used to the “never” word
when it comes to infrastructure projects. A lot of projects have been heard by the
people who were not at all implemented.
Having said that, there have been recently different initiatives from the
infrastructure and transport department which have enhanced the commuting
whose within the city.
1. Eastern Freeway:
The Mumbai eastern freeway is actually 16.8 km long which is specifically
designed for the high speed vehicles and the traffic congestion developed within
Fort in South Mumbai and the Eastern Express Highway present in Ghatkopar.
Features of Eastern freeway:
The Eastern Freeway is actually constructed by the Mumbai Metropolitan region
Development Authority and the whole project is funded by the central
government. The project is going to be completed within 3 phases.
The first phase is a 12 km stretch starting from the fort to Anik depot, the second
will be a 5 km phase which incorporates Anik to Panjarpol, Panjarpol to Mankhurd
and then to Ghatkopar within the eastern highway.
2. Santacruz-Chembur Link Road:
Since the city is geographically vertical, the Santacruz-Chembur link road is being
developed for the improvement of east-west connectivity within the city. This will
be a 6.45 km long road which runs along the East Skirting Vidyanagari Campus.
This is a six lane road which comprises of India’s first Double Decker flyover.
3. Sahar Elevated access road:
The Sahar elevated access road is a connection with the Western Express Highway
to the terminal T2 of the famous airport of India known as Chhatrapati Shivaji
International Airport. This one is 3.3 Km long road which includes an underpass.
Benefits of Sahar road
It is specifically created for the vehicles of the Western Express Highway,
underpass, a pedestrian subway, ramps and a tunnel which makes a connection
to the terminal and highway. The access roads comprises of 2 exit points and 4
entry points. This will make it really easy for the travelers who have to travel
through the congested road every day for reaching the T2 terminal of Chhatrapati
4. Bandra Kurla Complex flyover:
It has been approved by the MMRDA that four flyovers will be constructed within
the Bandra Kurla complex, and along with the flyovers a separate road will be
constructed for clearing the daily rush. It is a fact that more than 12000 cars
crowd within the BKC junction and the flyovers will make it easy for reaching the
Sea Link from BKC.
5. Advantage for the motorists:
The motorists who do get stuck in traffic at kalanagar while returning from
Dharavi will be benefitted by the flyover. The overall length of the two, double
lane flyovers is 1888 meters.
The flyovers that are running from Dharavi towards the Western Express Highway
shall be joining the flyover running from BKC within the second level. There is
going to be a three lane flyover that connects the flyovers reaching WEH.
